Gloucester man named 'Van Driver of the Year'

A Gloucestershire based van driver has beat off tough competition from employees across over 100 other depots, to be crowned "Van Driver of the Year".

Delivery network APC has recognised and rewarded the most successful depots and top performing individuals across its network.

Dan Webber, an employee of Cheltenham-based delivery business Nationwide Express Services, received the award in recognition of his outstanding customer service and dedication as part of its annual All Depot Meeting (ADM).

The ADM, hosted virtually this year, celebrated those who have significantly contributed to the company's success - recognising some of the outstanding achievements over the last year - at a time where logistics has played a critical role in keeping essential items moving and supplying communities during the coronavirus pandemic.

Chief executive of The APC, Jonathan Smith said: "At this year's ADM we recognise our brilliant depot teams and colleagues who have shown hard work and commitment to continually meeting the increasing and changing logistics needs of the nation during this crisis.

"Not only have they offered critical logistics support to SMEs across the UK, but in many cases have gone above and beyond in recognising the needs of their customers and their local communities, working hard in partnership with them to ensure those needs are met."

Kathy Cookson at AE Smith Engineering Ltd, a customer of Nationwide Express Services, said: "Dan represents APC in a very professional manner with great customer service skills. Nothing is too much trouble for him, he does his best to fit into our routine as a business, which is very helpful and also gives us the confidence that our parcels will be picked up in a timely fashion.

"This confidence in service is very important to us - we will have committed to our customer when their goods will be delivered and any issues with deliveries will firstly reflect on us as a supplier. Dan always has a smile on his face and in these difficult times make us all feel better."
